The Little Dancer

THE LITTLE DANCER - 10 X 14 - Watercolor - $600 Framed
Have you ever been to a dance recital with young dancers? We went to many over the years with our daughter who loved to dance.  She tried jazz, tap and rhythmic gymnastics and enjoyed them all.  It is so much fun to watch the young dancers, full of enthusiasm, loving every moment and moving in their own way.  Of course the older dancers have lots of polish and pazazz but the young ones have that freedom and liveliness that can only be found in the new dancer.  I was really trying to capture that spirit with this painting of my young dancer with her tap group.
My painting is off to the “Just Dance” show at the Newton Cultural Center, 13530 72nd Ave, Surrey.  The show opens today, April 3 and runs to April 30.  Gallery is open 7 days a week 10-4pm.  The show is in celebration to the Dance Festivals that happen every April in Surrey at the Surrey Arts Center.  There are daily dance recitals as all the groups take part in this month long major competition.  Check out the art show and the festival, they are just down the street from each other.
As always cards and prints are available of all my work, starting at $3.50 for cards.

Thanks Brenda, it was a bit of an experiment; travelling into uncharted waters. But I must admit it was kind of fun.
